I first heard this song by AMERICA when it came out and although it was never a big hit, I always liked the message and have been wanting Route 66 to learn it. While we are taking our yearly break, Bob Wade and I decided to mess around in the studio and this is what we came up with. I hope the band will make it one we add to the setlist in 2013.
The line that strikes me as very poignant in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy is the line.."Then we call on the man who walks on the water, we talk of a plan to stop all the slaughter....in view....it's in View!
Hoping you enjoy this version and we dedicate it to the hope that there is a plan to stop all the slaughter and all these terrible shootings. 12/18/12 Loudbob & Jack from Route 66 Band NC.
